    Well, it looks like you're a bit later for 2.4 with that. Get them
    into 2.6 and if they prove good we can backport the bugfix portions.
    As for Red Hat: I'll bet the next Red Hat product will be based on
    a 2.6 kernel, as is fedora as their public beta testing community
    whizbang version.
